It’s finally here, Mary Ritchersons Signature Machine Hair Stroke Technique, NanoLines®.

The Queen of Machine Hair Strokes is super excited to share with you all her tips, tricks and techniques to achieving beautiful, natural and long-lasting results for Hair Strokes.

Not all skin types are suitable for the traditional Microblading Technique, where the pigment is scratched/cut into the skin. This can cause more trauma and poor healing. Technicians are realizing that the skin has more scar tissue and cannot be done more than a couple times. It’s great to have options that fit the need of the client.

With machine work, you puncture the skin in clean strokes, causing less trauma and allowing for subsequent procedures to be performed over the years. When done properly, there is minimal to no bleeding allowing for better healing and long-lasting results.  Less Trauma=Better Retention!
